Plastic Sheeting and Jerrycans

By 4th September 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

They fight for them you know
They are important
Plastic sheeting and jerrycans,
The women scream and scratch
The men vicious in their need
For biggest the best
Of the plastic sheeting
They are important for survival you see,
The sheeting to protect from the
Wind, sand and rain
The jerrycans hold the families
Precious water
Simple things, important things
In the camps
